Cloud IT infrastructure provider Wiwynn will showcase a hardware platform for deployment of low latency edge software at the Big5G 2022 event.
The company’s EP100 platform is said to be a field-proven, Open Compute Project (OCP) openEDGE hardware platform for cases involving private 5G Open RAN, core network, and edge computing. It will feature five single-socket CPU sleds.
Wiwynn says the EP100 is designed for edge applications that run diverse workloads and will require different levels of scaling by scenarios. “Our goal is to provide a flexible, scalable, and optimized hardware platform that powers a wide range of software-defined applications at the edge,” says Wiwynn president Sunlai Chang.
The company will work with Ciena and other technology vendors to enable a private 5G smart factory proof-of-concept site for tower providers in Germany, and will collaborate on a trial of an integrated 5G-based low latency mixed-reality application for a U.S. telecom.
Other current uses include an automated mobile robot in Wiwynn’s factory in Taiwan, an ultra-low latency immersive holography project for aTaiwanese telecom, and as the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) in the Open Networking Foundation’s SD-RAN 5G field trial with Deutsche Telekom, as well as the MEC server in Telefonica’s 5G pilot use cases in Malaga, Spain.
The EP100 will be shown at Big5G 2022 from May 16 to 18 in Austin, Texas.
